Brandylane is a small, independent press, founded in 1985, that publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and children’s books. We believe books make a difference, that lives and the world are changed by the power of words and images, and that large publishing houses neglect a wealth of good writing.
We invite you to browse our bookstore where we believe you'll discover a wealth of compelling titles and writers you'll want to read and read again. We also invite you to write us and our authors to let us know what you've discovered, what moved you
or just to say hello. Unlike many larger publishers, we're accessible, and we love to hear from readers, writers, and our customers.
If you're interested in submitting work for publication, visit our Publishing link for more information and our submission guidelines.
Thank you for visiting Brandylane. We look forward to serving you.

In a detailed look at the history of Richmond, Benjamin Campbell examines the contradictions and crises that have formed the city over more than four centuries. Campbell argues that the community of metropolitan Richmond is engaged in a decisive spiritual battle in the coming decade. He believes the city, more than any in the nation, has the potential for an unprecedented and historic achievement. Its citizens can redeem and fulfill the ideals of their ancestors, proving to the world that race and class can be conquered by the deliberate and prayerful intention of honest and dedicated citizens.
